Women's Campaign Fund - Fall 2012 Fellowship Program
WCF is seeking applications for the 2012 Fellowship Program. The fellowship program is designed to provide young women and men with practical, firsthand experience within a national political organization with an emphasis on professional development. WCF Fellows have gone on to work on the Hill, on political campaigns, and for organizations such as The Center for American Progress, DCCC, The Raben Group, and SEIU. Each Fellow will specialize in one of four categories: Political, Communications, Development, or Programs. Although each Fellow focuses in one area, WCF offers a cross-disciplinary approach to training that allows the opportunity for Fellows to gain experience in all departments. This is not your typical “internship.” Our Fellows produce high caliber work and are integral members of the team.
WCF Fellows will also have the opportunity to expand their knowledge and skills in areas such as:
- Non-profit & PAC infrastructure and political database maintenance
- Online Communications including blog writing, basic HTML, and website content management
- Fundraising including call-time management, event planning, grant writing, and donor development
- Professional Development including formal performance reviews, public speaking, resume review and salary negotiation
Qualifications: Applicants should have excellent research, writing, and communications skills as well as the ability to work independently and in a small group setting. Applicants must have excellent computer skills. A strong interest in progressive women’s issues and increased representation of women in political office is critical.
To Apply: Please complete the online form and submit a resume, a list of references, and a cover letter. In your cover letter, please describe your interest in WCF and women's issues and describe a project that you would like to focus on during your fellowship. http://www.wcfonline.org/fellowship or email firstname.lastname@example.org
